Cellophane Memories: David Lynch and Chrystabell album coming in August

Legendary filmmaker David Lynch has collaborated with Chrystabell on a new album called Cellophane Memories

David Lynch

David Lynch hasn’t directed a feature film since Inland Empire in 2006, but he has directed many shorts since then, as well as all 18 episodes of Twin Peaks: The Return. A while back, we heard that he’s hoping to make an animated film called Snootworld, which was rejected by the Netflix streaming service… but while we wait to find out whether or not Snootworld is going to find a home, Lynch is working with Chrystabell to send a new music album out into the world. This album is called Cellophane Memories and has a street date of August 2nd. Copies are available to pre-order at THIS LINK.

In a video posted to X at the end of May, Lynch said, “Ladies and gentlemen, something is coming along for you to see and hear. And it will be coming along on June 5.” As it turns out, that “something” was a video for the Cellophane Memories track “Sublime Eternal Love.” Since then, a lyric video has also been released, as well as an animated video for the track “The Answers to the Questions.” These videos can be seen on Lynch’s YouTube channel.

Lynch is who we have to thank for Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, the 1984 version of Dune, Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, Wild at Heart, Lost Highway, The Straight Story, and Mulholland Drive, among other things. He has been working with The Nightmare Before ChristmasEdward ScissorhandsThe Addams Family, and Welcome to Marwen writer Caroline Thompson on the screenplay for Snootworld, on and off, for a couple of decades. Thompson told Deadline that the story of Snootworld is “wackadoo.” She said, “It takes my breath away how wacky it is. The Snoots are these tiny creatures who have a ritual transition at aged eight at which time they get tinier and they’re sent away for a year so they are protected. The world goes into chaos when the Snoot hero of the story disappears into the carpet and his family can’t find him and he enters a crazy, magnificent world.“ Thompson wrote the first and third acts of the screenplay, while Lynch wrote the second act. Lynch is on board to produce the film if and when it gets rolling, but isn’t sure if he’ll direct it.

Lynch and Chrystabell previously collaborated on the albums This Train (2011) and Somewhere in the Nowhere (2016).
